Read About Me
International Personal Image and Personal Branding Consultant Edith Chan
I believes a successful personal image facilitates an effective personal branding, brings out the glow and multiple facets of an individual as well as bridging the communication between people, both on corporate and creative levels.
I went through several life-changing, moving from Hong Kong to London to New York to Madrid; enthusiastic and determined to up level my life and career to have limitless success.
Since at my young age, I always had a strong drive and desire to create an experience that I wanted to live and breathe, because growing up in a traditional and strict Chinese family, if I didn’t do whatever my parents told me then, I was a bad kid.
My father disapproved with me to become a hair and make-up artist in my 20s. He criticised and discouraged me from wasting time and energy on foolish endeavours.
Whenever I shared my exciting experience or success, he always saw the lens of his own limiting paradigm, and that is the reason I never felt connected with him. Of course, in my heart, I was hoping my father would say how proud of me he was. But somehow that was never going to happen. Maybe I was wrong to even hope for it because he didn’t support and care to have a real appreciation of how far I have just come.
By the age of 23, I told my mother, I wanted to move to London to seek a significant change in my life and building the life I wished for myself. Two weeks after arrived in London, not having any network or knowing anyone, I just knocked on the door to a few famous hairdressing companies to ask for a stylist job. Amazingly, I got one to accept, and my exciting journey started to begin.
Through my career path, I have earned my experience with numerous prestigious companies included Shangri-la Luxury Hotels, TIGI Unliever, Toni&Guy, Shu Uemura, Sanrizz, Kim Robinson Luxury Salon, in both London and Hong Kong. My duties included hair and beauty services, wardrobe advisory and image creation.
